Foot by Foot

Foot by foot
We all walk fine lines
anyw here
finer, finer, finer
togeather we walk
march with hands held
foot by foot
the hungry hands of hell
reaching up to us
from the bottom below
to fall is to fall
soul in chains
the chains shackled
from one life to another
foot by foot
foot by foot
foot by foot
foot by foot
over and over
one falls and we all fall
we all fall
our time is gone
our time is done
their time has come
our time is gone
foot by foot
they enter
to the tight rope
from our wombs
foot by foot
they all walk fine lines
foot by foot

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
